Whiteside totaled 17 points 7-10 FG, 3-6 FT), 13 rebounds, one steal, and one block in 20 minutes during Saturday's 100-92 victory over the Knicks. Whiteside still played just 20 minutes Saturday but was able to come away with a productive line. He ended with 17 points and 13 rebounds, his first double-double in over two weeks. He has been a huge disappointment down the stretch and his future is certainly a topic that will be debated across the off-season. At this stage, he is firmly behind Bam Adebayo on the depth chart and is more of a streaming option for the remaining games.
Whiteside finished with 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-6 FT), nine rebounds, and three blocks in 24 minutes during Friday's 116-87 loss to the Bucks. Whiteside came off the bench again Friday but saw more playing time that Bam Adebayo, who managed just 18 minutes. The game was ugly and the rotations certainly reflected the overall play of the Heat. Despite coming off the bench, Whiteside has been maintaining standard league relevance, although, the playing time here is likely to reduce again Saturday against the Wizards.
Whiteside scored 14 points (5-9 FG, 4-7 FT) while adding 11 rebounds and three blocks in 19 minutes off the bench during Friday's 113-98 loss to the Bucks. The Heat's efforts to limit his court time and keep him fresh seem to be paying off. Whiteside has grabbed a double-double in four of the last five games, averaging 12.8 points, 11.0 boards and 1.6 blocks over that stretch despite not playing more than 23 minutes in any of them.
Whiteside totaled 13 points (6-12 FG, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one block across 20 minutes off the bench in the Heat's win over the Pistons on Wednesday. Whiteside came off the bench for the fifth straight game on Wednesday, posting a double-double in just 20 minutes of action. In those five starts, he's still managed to be productive, averaging 10.8 points, 10.2 rebounds, 1.2 blocks and 1.0 steals in 19.2 minutes. His decrease in minutes have driven his price down in daily formats, where he makes an excellent punt-play because of his double-double upside.
Whiteside scored 11 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 FT) while adding 11 rebounds in 23 minutes off the bench during Friday's 126-110 win over the Cavaliers. It was far from his most productive effort, but Whiteside still chipped in his second straight double-double. He seems to be taking to his current bench role well enough, but the 23 minutes he saw Friday were his most in three games since returning from a hip injury. If Miami continues to limit his court time in an effort to keep the brittle big man healthy, his production will suffer.
